Care For The Elderly

Care For The Elderly
With an ageing population and an increasing load on an already over-worked national health service, care for the elderly is a growing concern in the UK. Families the length and breadth of the country are  facing the question of what to do for their loved ones as they reach an age where some form of care is required.

It is a difficult time for all concerned. An elderly person will struggle with the gradual deterioration of their body and mind, rendering them susceptible to not only physical but also mental ailments and conditions, such as depression and insomnia. Witnessing this but being unable to provide the succour they may wish to can be a heartbreaking time for maily members.

Care for the elderly

The elderly often require specialised care and attention, from trained individuals, ranging from simple assistance around the house to full 24 hour care. As a portal for information regarding all aspects of care for the elderly, we are here to help you understand what are your options, where to start and who to talk to, how to choose between live-in and residential care, to ensure your loved one gets the best available health care. We can also  give you a chance to compare and contrast the costs of the  various options, and advice you on what the NHS can do for you too.

The Hospice cares for those with progressive illnesses across a broad age range.

Cancer and other serious progressive illnesses pay no respect to how old you are.

We help those who need us by our high standards of nursing and medical care, trying always to sustain their quality of life and relief from pain.

To their families, friends and carers we offer the same loving support, help and councelling because incurable illnesses affect whole families.

We provide direct help in four ways - in-patients, Day Unit, respite facilities and care during the last few days of life.

In addition, our Home Care/Hospital Support Team helps those who cannot easily make the journey to the Day Unit at the Hospice at Bicton Heath, Shrewsbury.

We help patients enjoy a better quality of life, often enabling them to do things they thought had gone forever.

It is all about love and understanding and so many of life's little extras.

The hospice is not just a place where people come to die. Many go back home again; many carers are glad of the respite to re-charge their batteries and re-kindle their commitment to those they love.

There is a common misbelief that a hospice is where everyone goes to die. That is not true. The average stay in a hospice is twelve to fourteen days, after which many patients return home.
